Birthday Wishes ...


Sorry I have been MIA for a few days. I've been spending some time with my hunny for his birthday weekend & would like to wish him a HAPPY BIRTHDAY for today!! 

Anyway, I managed to squeeze in a little inky time while the football was on last night to make this birthday card for him ...

I used 2 challenges for this card, firstly a retrosketch sketch HERE and also the Play Date Cafe Colour Challenge HERE. Below are the two inspiration pictures ...

The last NEW set for my focus which was released last month from Uniko Studio is Background Builders Lattice. I love this set & it has SO many possibilities! I used 2 sentiment stamps from Fontiments - Birthday too. I stamped the lattice in Memento Black ink and coloured the in lattice using 3 Copic colours matched to The Play Date Cafe Challenge. I then stamped the individual lattice stamps coloured them & cut them out & adhered them to the card using foam adhesive. A few dew drops finished the card nicely. A modern masculine card! 

That's all from me today, I'm off to spend some more quality time with my hunny as it's his birthday today & while he is off work too! Were off out for pizza & a movie - yum! I'll be back tomorrow with another card using this set combined with a previously released set! 

Thanks for stopping by!
